Located in the Historic district of Boulder, Colorado, the Victorian homes are landmarks of a time when life was simpler. Thankfully, today these homes are protected by the City, but it is the owners of these properties that really deserve the credit. Our full gut renovation of this 1902 Queen Anne happily marries casual modernity and Victorian authenticity. Supporting the owners’ vision of a fully livable home, we found inspiration in their adventurous taste and whimsical style, while also preserving the unique features of the original construction. The homeowner’s aim was to retain as much of the original house elements as possible, and to “restore”, rather than to “replace”.
